What’s Up – Small Round-leaved OrchidPosted: July 7, 2012
By Larry Halverson/Friends of Kootenay
Small Round-leaved Orchids grow throughout Kootenay National Park and are in full bloom right now. Hundreds if not thousands are flowering along the Mount Wardle spring stream.
They look like little ‘angels’ with their hoods and white wings. Typically these pale pink to white flowers are spotted with purple but on a very rare occasion you find one with irregular blotches of purple like the one above which was found near McLeod Meadow Campground. Botanists call this variation Amerorchis rotundifolia var. lineata.
